NOTICE OF ELECTION
Palestine Texas Aug 3 1910
To the Property TaxPayers of Pales
tine
We have this day passed an ordi
nance calling on the property tax
payers to vote on two propositions
one to issue 17000 in bonds to pay
for and improve two public parks in
the city of Palestine one of about 22
acres to be purchased out of what is
known as the Michaux Grove to cost
12000 the other in the northern
part of the city bounded on the south
by Cherokee street on the west by
Conrad street on the east by Queen
street and on the north of Alkires
Line containing about 20 acres for
3000 also 2000 to improve the
parks one thousand dollars each
And a second proposition to ask the
property taxpayers to vote on a bond
issue of 9000 to buy fire fighting
equipment At the present time we
have but very little fire fighting
equipment and will have to purchase
some as soon as possible if we hope
to reduce or even maintain our pres
tDt insurance rates
We desire to advise you that the
issuance of these bonds will not in
any way increase your present tax
rate or cause you to pay any more
taxes than you will p ay if they are
not issued They will be taken care
of in the 25c bond levy for public
improvements that is fixed by law
and cannot be increased but is al
ways levied to care for bonds We
row have room in this fund to take
care of these bonds without increasing
tbe tax rate
Respectfully
